Top five Florida Gators wins against LSU in Death Valley

No. 17 Florida is going for its first win at LSU in five years Saturday. 

The Gators are 12-8 in Baton Rouge dating back to 1981, but have won just once in their last five trips. This year’s matchup will break a 17-17 tie in the all-time series in games played at Tiger Stadium. 

Here are Florida’s top five wins in Death Valley:

1964: Florida 20, LSU 6

After Florida’s 1960 comeback victory in the infamous wristband robbery game, the Tigers won three in a row and shut out UF in 1963, 14-0. LSU was again favored the following year, but the Oct. 3 matchup was postponed two months due to Hurricane Hilda. Three weeks later, sophomore quarterback (and future Heisman Trophy winner) Steve Spurrier took over as the starter. He capped off the year by guiding the Gators to a two-touchdown upset win over No. 7 LSU in the regular-season finale. Spurrier was named the SEC’s Sophomore of the Year for 1964.
